Internet Explorer 11’s unexplained delay

Yesterday, Microsoft confirmed that Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 is finally available. I immediately downloaded the package and inspected it: Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 (x64) is digitally-signed on 15 October 2013, meaning that the package could have not possibly changed ever since.

What was the IE team doing during this time?

The preview version of Internet Explorer 11 also exhibited a similar delay: It was released on 19 September while it was digitally-signed on 23 August 2013.

As an interesting side note, Windows 8.1 was released 17 October 2013, so the reason for the delay can’t be the languages.
